JUN 11, 2014 8:55a ET
Fernando's agent has confirmed that the Porto midfielder is waiting to finalize his long awaited move to Manchester City.
The 26-year-old was the subject of a bid from City in January that was rejected, but now Manuel Pellegrini's side have returned to re-open talks.
Now a deal, reportedly worth Â£16million, is close to being completed with the player expected to arrive in England this week to undergo a medical.
Speaking to Maisfutebol, his agent Antonio Araujo stated: "Everything is in Porto's hands and we hope to finalize the transfer by the end of the week.
"Fernando is in the city of Porto waiting for Porto tell him their decision about the documents they have received so that he can travel immediately [to Manchester]."
Because he now has a Portuguese passport, City no longer require a work permit to sign the midfielder.
